Never will go back to Bambinos since the owners did not renew the lease on La Creperie, one of downtowns oldest remaining quality eateries. Will not patronize their hamburger joint effort, The Skirted Hiefer. Nothing like adding one more burger joint to an already saturated burger market in this town, but hey, good luck on your half thought out business plan. The pizzas and "Italian" food at Bambinos were always mediocre at best, much, much better choices in the town. Arrivederci!
This place is unclean, the food undercooked, the preparation uneven (meaning the ingredients are not appropriately spread around the crust...the sauce is simply ketchup from a squirt bottle, and the help has never held a job before and will probably turn over before the week is out.
The cheese on this pizza tastes like plastic. Also, this restaurant (at any of their locations) has some of the worst customer service I've ever seen. They act like they are doing you a favor to condescend to take your order.
My husband used to live on the east coast, this was the closest to NY pizza that he's seen in Colorado. The staff was great, pizza hot and tasty and the cannolis (especially the chocolate ones) are to die for!!!
awful pizza, awful people...deserves to go under
It's an insult to refer the pizza to NY style? You have a blend of the lowest quality GMO cheese, our pizza pie cheese didn't even melt. Never again..
I just read the review about it taking 25 mins for a calzone. Wow, I would have been overjoyed if it only took 25 mins. More like an hour!! Pizza was so so. Service was horrible and the place was a mess. $36 for crappy food. Do yourself a favor and don't go.
Relax...it is not meant to a five star eatery...it is a bring your own beer pizza place, with the best pizza in El Paso County.
I think it is fun and funky...but if you drop the attitude, so do the people there, who I have always found friendly, talkative, and helpful.
I must say it was quite unfriendly, over price, and tiny salads. I ordered 2 slices of cheese pizza and 2 house salads(the size of a big mac box) with very little on it... for 20 bucks! Need I say more.
Praise the Lord, and pass the pepto
good pizza and i love the $11 18" special
vikisgarden5 - you could pick up the phone and call them. Just saying...
Try after 5 pm.
I just want to know what their hours are so I can go??
The real deal Italiano
Everything about this place from ice cold beer to great sausage is world class.
Get there early...even the huge parking lot fills up let alone the 14 tables....but absolutely delicious....a simply read menu, that has within it everything you can imagine. The staff is friendly and hard at work...the pizza is the best.
Love their pizza but BEWARE, their location on North Academy has closed, it still takes phone calls but they are redirected to their Powers location, which THEY DO NOT TELL YOU, and you end up DRIVING AN HOUR to get the pizza. Will never be their customer again!
I agree w/ the above ratings, The Barnes location recently re-opened due to a kitchen fire, and since then, the pizza bites. I once loved them especially when I requested they over cook it by 5 mins, making the outside crust dark and crispy, but Yuck to them now. They should have tried to save the seasoned oven, the new one does nothing for the taste. JMHO.
Awful...had to take my pizza back and cook it myself
If I could possibly rate them lower, believe me, I would. You know, for New York style pizza, they used to be alright. They also used to have tolerable prices. But, I made the mistake of listening to my loving wife and ordered 2 pizzas from them last night. A cheese and their Chicken Hot Wing pizza. Just the Chicken one was $20 alone!!!!! And believe me when I say that it wasn't worth it... It was thinner than paper. Barely any toppings and the crust was so dense that I had to take a break because my jaw was tired. It was ridiculous. They charge $14 for just a cheese pizza!!!!! Come on!!!!!! Then to top it off, gouge me with a $2.50 for delivery? Man..... I wish I could roll back time and make a better decision.
DO NOT ORDER HERE!!!! Go with Blackjack Pizza. They have changed so dramatically that I am amazed. Great flavor, super prices, and I always have plenty of leftovers. We had none with Borriello's paper thin pizza.
